I’m off-track and a lot lost so I’m trying my best to seek God with all my heart.
My daily devotional compiled 7 God-given truths that define the way we should navigate our lives.
Jesus can be like a GPS…His directives are just more subtle.
I’m incredibly struck by these 7 simple truths and want to share them, along with what they mean to me right now.
Each one has numerous interpretations, applications and relevancy for everyone – no matter what your spiritual belief.
Love God more than you fear hell.
Fear traps me. I’m terrified of weight gain, the flesh accumulating around my bones. Being in my skin is hellish. But I need to go through it. I need to love god more than I fear the discomfort.
Make major decisions in a cemetery.
When no one is watching, live as if someone is.
If you’re doing something secretively, you probably shouldn’t be doing it. I’d be humiliated if anyone were to witness my behavior sometimes. I’m ashamed just thinking about what I ate for lunch yesterday. Shame is making me sick.
Succeed at home first.
I need to fix what’s broken in my own heart and soul (my home) before I can correct other areas of my life (career, relationships…) or help other people.
Don’t spend tomorrow’s money today.
I’ve got wild issues with money and compulsive spending but beyond that, I need to adopt this attitude in many aspects of life. I often eat as if I’ll never eat again or feel I have to exercise x amount every day. I stay up too late. Save some for later, girl!
Pray twice as much as you fret.
I waste SO much time ruminating about food, my body, my issues…these are all moments when I could be fixating on God.
God has forgiven you; you’d be wise to do the same.
No explanation necessary.
Do any of these strike you as a personal directive? Why?
PS- Thanks SO much for your kind words of encouragement, compassion and advice on my last post. So helpful. #therearenowords.
